Online reviews looked great. Photos looked great. Their website says they are open. Google said they are open. Called to see if I needed a reservation for tonight. Voicemail says thanks for calling, To make a reservation please call “some lady’s name” at #phonenumber. So...I do. Phone rings a bit then goes to voicemail. Voicemail says thanks for calling the Wine Cellar bar. Sorry to have missed you call, if you want to book a reservation, do not leave a message but call the restaurant at #phonenumber, which is the same one I called before. Figured they were too busy to answer so we drove by. Empty and dark. I guess they are closed? Either post your hours or leave them on the voicemail. Don’t give a number to call just to have them tell you to call back the other guy.More

The Cellar downtown Penticton offered us the most delicious food I've had in a long time. Jenna, our server, was professional and friendly while Chef Nick delivered a meal extraordinaire. Don't miss this long time restaurant whether a special occasion or simply a great meal....Thanks for making my visit special :)More

This unassuming little restaurant is definitely a hidden gem in Penticton. The atmosphere is inviting and the staff are friendly, helpful and professional.

The Cellar was recommended by our BnB host, so we thought we would try it. BIG mistake. Our waitress was on another planet. She couldn't make eye contact, and made several errors throughout the evening. She was rude and flippant. She wasn't knowledgable about the...menu. Every question asked was met with, "I have to check with the chef."The roast beef arrived with no Yorkshire Pudding or horseradish. When we asked for it, we got the pat answer - I will ask the chef where the Yorkshire Pudding is. She charged two of us for a full bottle of wine rather than a glass, and when the mistake was pointed out, she angrily grabbed all the bills to take away and start again. The "chef" - isn't one. The food was really disappointing, and the missing Yorkshire Pudding was a disgusting hockey puck. The gravy could not save it. We complained, and the waitress brought it to the owner's attention. The owner tried to smooth things over by giving us four glasses of ouzo. We didn't need more alcohol. We would have been happier with a few dollars off the bill, which would probably have cost her less than wasting ouzo on diners who didn't drink it. All in all, just a horrible experience. And the pricing was way out of line. Our roast beef dinner was $39! I have passed along our displeasure to the BnB host, and now to all of you. There are plenty of good places to eat in Penticton. Do yourself a favour, and go elsewhere.More

The wonder was dismissive and rude. She also closed early without any warning, rushing us out the door. Half of the dishes we ordered were great and half were not. This is my 3rd try at this place - I won’t be back. Lots of...other fantastic places to eat in Penticton!More

Please don't go here!! I want to be able to get a table the next time I go out for a meal. Best food, excellent service, and worth every penny.

Had a great meal, was a busy night and they managed to squeeze our table of 6. I had the prawns/curry appetizer and I am still thinking about that curry sauce, our waiter was fantastic, he was very friendly and made us all chuckle.

We were looking for a place to eat and we found The Cellar as one of the few places still open in that area of Main Street. They made room for our group of 6. The food was amazing & our waiter was awesome!

Wasn't expecting a wine bar to be a Greek restaurant. The food was decent, we had Scallops wrapped in Bacon, The Pork Chop and Chicken Penne, all decent; but nothing spectacular. Honestly our most memorable take away was the service. They were very busy and...this wonderful older woman just cruised through the place, dropping of drinks, food, menus etc, Never in a rush; but aways getting to everyone just as it was need. Super impressiveMore
